As part of the “Knowledge, Health and Food for All” project co-ordinated by Research and Co-operation, Ipogea has invented the traditional techins of Bolivia, Ecuador and India identified by local partners. Such techniques fuel the World Bank of Traditional Knowledge (TKWB) promoted by Ipogea along with UNESCO, a wiki-type online card system that can be viewed by everyone and thus allows the conservation and the current use of traditional knowledge. TKWB is currently prototype and will be ready at the beginning of 2013. There are three types of cards: Module 1 contains a general description of the State, Module 2 deepens the analysis of a given area and Module 3 describes ‘Local application of a traditional technique. Techniques are inventoried by the SITTI methodology that identifies traditional techniques with easy recognition icons, visually located in their geographic location on Google Earth.
